Manchester United are set to complete the signing of Jadon Sancho and want to follow it up with a move for Raphael Varane.


Sancho is due to undergo a medical with United before going on holiday ahead of the new season.


Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will give the England international a three-week break after his involvement in the Euros, but wants to conclude his transfer before that.


United have already agreed a £72.9million deal for the Borussia Dortmund winger.

With the terms of his five-year contract with the option of a further 12 months also in place, all that is left is for the formality of a medical.


Sancho departed from the rest of the England squad after Sunday’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Italy, which saw him fail with a spot kick.


He is keen to rest ahead of his return to the Premier League.
United hope to make a minimum of three signings this summer, with a centre back high on Solskjaer’s wanted list.


There is increasing confidence that a deal for Real Madrid defender Varane can be agreed, with the player eager to head to Old Trafford.

But much will depend on Real’s asking price for the 28-year-old, who has a year left on his contract.


The Spanish giants are believed to want around £60m for the centre back, which would eat into the remainder of Solskjaer’s budget and potentially impact his hopes of landing Rennes midfielder Eduardo Camavinga.


Kieran Trippier is another player on United’s radar.
Funds should be brought in from the sale of Jesse Lingard, who enjoyed an outstanding loan spell at West Ham last season.
